Strenuous

Strenuous hikes usually involve rugged, mountainous terrain.  Expect to encounter steep elevation gains of 1,000-2,000 feet or more, stream crossings, and minor rock scrambles.  Hikers should be experienced, in good shape, wear proper hiking attire, be equipped with proper hiking gear, and prepared to get a workout.
